Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) is a constituent college of the University of London. The college has three faculties, 18 academic departments, and about 9,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students from over 100 different countries. The campus is located slightly west of Egham, Surrey, within the boundary of the Greater London Urban Area, although outside of the M25 motorway and some 20 miles (32 km) from the geographic centre of London. One of the largest multi-faculty colleges of the University of London, Royal Holloway has a distinguished history and reputation for academic innovation. Since Queen Victoria presided over the grand opening ceremony of Royal Holloway College on 30 June 1886, the College has continued to grow in size and status to become one of the top research-led university institutions in the country. Today, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, the present Chancellor of the University of London, to which Royal Holloway was admitted in 1900, is regularly welcomed as a distinguished guest, maintaining the College's privileged association with royal families past and present.
